Thermal crystallization studies have been carried out on bulk, semiconducting AsxTe100−x glasses of different compositions using Differential Scanning Caloritmery. AsxTe100−x glasses with x < 40, are found to exhibit one glass transition and one crystallization. On the other hand, glasses with composition 40 less-than-or-equals, slantxless-than-or-equals, slant 50 show one glass transition and two crystallization reactions. It has been found that in glasses with x greater-or-equal, slanted 40, the two crystallization reactions progressively merge with an increase in arsenic concentration. Consequently AsxTe100−x glasses with x greater-or-equal, slanted 50 show only one crystallization. The composition dependence of crystallization temperatures and activation energies for crystallization estimated by Kissinger's method, show marked deviations at a composition x = 40. These observations can be explained in terms of the changes in the local structure of the material with composition.
